After many rallies, Mrs. Brummer died peacefully due to respiratory failure with family by her side. She went into God's loving arms and joined her husband George, who died in 1973, and her son, Michel, who died in 1980.
Liliane LeGuen was born in Aubervilliers, France, on Jan. 29, 1928; the third child of Elise (Pierret) and Eugene LeGuen. She graduated from high school in France at the age of 16 and worked in the Department of Agriculture. Following World War II, she moved to America, learned English and met her future husband, George Brummer, in church in 1946. They married in 1947, and had their first of nine children in 1948. Mrs. Brummer was a homemaker until her husband died suddenly in January 1973. Mrs. Brummer then went back to school and obtained her Bachelor's Degree in education and taught French in high school. Mrs. Brummer then began working for the State of New Hampshire, Department of Welfare, where she remained until her retirement in 1995.
Mrs. Brummer loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was a devoted and loving mother and grandmother. She was kind and gentle and gave unconditional love throughout her life.
